Advocacy for Youth Employment ADYE

Advocacy for Youth Employment (ADYE) sought to improve the capacities of youth organizations to advocate for youngsters’ rights in the post-pandemic framework with particular reference to employment. Taking into consideration that the long-term effects of COVID-19 had just started unravelling, unemployment rates were expected to increase in the next semesters. This inevitably resulted in a high percentage of young people being unemployed. This is particularly important because youth unemployment rises more sharply and recovers more slowly. This is even more true for youngsters belonging to minorities and/or groups with fewer opportunities, who are even more exposed to unemployment, working poverty or precarity.


Specifically, the project aimed to:

  • Develop skills of youth organisations and advocates, supporters, and allies (Capacity Building Training to Youth organisations).
  • Exchange & establish replicable good practice models for advocacy (Best Practices Guide on Advocacy for Youth Organisations (tools, methods, and practical implementation).
  • Raise awareness with regards to youth unemployment and develop tools and methods to address it on an institutional level. ADYE primarily seeks to reinforce the links between research, policy, and practice.
